Mauerstadt 30: Stories From The Berlin Wall @ YES 9 Nov 2019

Manchester Digital Music Archive presents Mauerstadt 30: Stories From The Berlin Wall with Mark Reeder on Saturday 9 November 2019 at YES in Manchester. The date is significant because it marks 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. This free event at YES commemorates the occasion with an afternoon of live music, conversation and film, as part of the HOMOBLOC festival.

Manchester-born, Berlin-based producer, filmmaker and cultural catalyst Mark Reeder (Shark Vegas, B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin 1979-1989) talks to Dr Beate Peter about Berlin's underground music scenes in the years leading up to the fall of the Wall, and how he risked his freedom to bring punk to the East.

Queer curator, DJ and co-founder of Manchester Digital Music Archive, Abigail Ward, debuts new live material in response to the theme of the Berlin Wall, with percussionist Howard Jacobs (808 State/Architects of Rosslyn) and synth torturer Mandy Wigby (Sisters of Transistors / Architects of Rosslyn).

Toast of London's queer underground, DJ Wes Baggaley (Fabric, NYC Downlow, Robert Johnson) and producer extraordinaire Margo Broom (Fat White Family, Meatraffle, Big Joanie) play a set of exclusive electronic music inspired by the Berlin Wall.
